Daytime Emmys to honor Hall, Stewart

Gameshow giants earn lifetime achivement awards

Monty Hall and Bob Stewart will receive lifetime achievement honors this year at the Daytime Emmy Awards.

Hall was the longtime host of “Let’s Make a Deal,” while Stewart created gameshows including “To Tell the Truth,” “Password” and “The $10,000 Pyramid.”

“Aside from all of the excitement around our 40th anniversary,” said National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Malachy Wienges, “we are honoring two giants in gameshow history. … The high-water mark these two pioneers have made in daytime television is unparalleled.”

Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmys will be announced May 1.
